It’s estimated that about 1 in 6 American adults experience neck pain in a given three-month time frame and its estimated that more than two million Americans sustain a whiplash injury each year. Neck pain is a major cause of missing work and reducing your quality of life. While some risk factors for neck pain may be unavoidable, many unfortunately are not. An article below from the National Institution of Health supports chiropractic care for whiplash and neck pain.

For the best chance of a full recovery and management of neck pain, doctors of chiropractic provide manual therapies like spinal and extremity joint manipulation (high-velocity thrust), mobilization (low-velocity non-thrust), manual traction, massage, neck-specific exercises, and a host of soft-tissue therapies. The chiropractor may also employ modalities like electric stim, ultrasound, pulsed electro-magnetic field, class IIIb or IV laser, and more. Patients are also encouraged to remain active to help them feel more in control of their recovery and can keep the muscles in the neck from becoming deconditioned. Instructions on stress relief/relaxation techniques, and improving sleep quality, as these not only aid in the healing process but also in reducing the risk for neck pain recurrence.

So, if you have had a car accident in Fort Myers or you have neck pain, pinched neck nerve, dizziness, vertigo, cervical radiculopathy, pain in your neck muscles, or imbalance and type in chiropractor near me, pain management near me, whiplash, or even car accident lawyer in your area you may find  Coast Chiropractic Centers with Dr. Timothy Harcourt, me, comes up. 

You may wonder, “Do I need an MRI scan of my neck or a DTI (Diffusion Tensor Imaging) of my brain for traumatic brain injury (TBI) detection and documentation”?

Some people around you will try stretching first to see if they get relief from their neck pain.   A pulled muscle generally will get better with rest.  Persistent or worsening pain intensity and/or frequency necessitates a visit to see a professional near you. A foggy brain may indicate a mild traumatic brain injury, thus the potential need for a DTI (Diffusion Tensor Imaging).  Persistent or worsening pain intensity and/or frequency necessitates a visit to see a professional around you.
